Sounds like May has been a rough month.

It was back to work after a long weekend today. I have seen the pile of data on my desk larger then it is now.

Wow, Connie, take care. Did you sell your home yet? If not, it is a blessing I guess. You don't need that aggravation right now. Carol

Anne - my bet is on you. You go girl

May has been a month of family challenges. One Brother in law died, another in the hospital, Mom in the hospital with brain masses and seizers, Dad having surgery tomorrow for skin cancer.

When we were not at the hospital we were doing 24hour home health care for my parents trading off with my siblings.

although we did squeeze in a trip to bermuda for my parents 60th anniversary. The grands all had a blast while the siblings just moved the home health care from home to the ship.

Needless to say - exhausting month and we're still not out of the woods yet.

Don't normally write depressing posts but man .... June will hopefully be better.

I love quilting - check out my portfolio. freepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gch

You go, Annie. Take pictures of your meals and include them.

The grands and I helped my mom clean up around my great-grand mother's house. They had some old buildings removed and there is a lot of junk left behind.

Annie - Good for you. You have to be your own advocate in situations like these. Also, make sure you document everything that you've done, conversations you've had, letters you've written, complaints you've made, and what the responses to each were. Having a record of attempts you've made to resolve the situation will help if the assisted living facility tries to say that *gasp* this is the first they've ever heard of any problems and of course they would have fixed them if they had only known. *eye roll*

Here in Assisted Living....we started our day with 'no cook for breakfast'. Lunch had watered down soup and I decided the beef & corn hot-dish for supper would intensify the diarrhea I've had for 5 days (I opted out of that meal).

Read the FBI's description on 'health care fraud' and now working on letters to Minnesota's Attorney General and State Senator. I'm so done dealing with no services and crap food!

I have been having a quiet Memorial Day. I have been doing laundry which is also my normal quilting time but I don't have a piecing project so I have been sewing bindings on several kid quilts which will be going to our quilt guilds charity project.

Yesterday afternoon, I started yet another project but one I've been aching to do for a while. I had about a dozen cotton men's thrift store shirts and yesterday I cut the sleeves off of about 9 of them. I now have a nice pile of 5" squares and 2.5" squares, thanks to my trusty GoBaby cutter. Its amazing how much you can get out of a sleeve! Mostly blue and white and I am making Bonnie Hunter's Smith Mountain Stars free pattern. Carol

Went back to the yard sale to look for a blue/white stripe fabric that I had gotten. Found some bits to use in a b/w quilt I'm making. Also, cut the sleeves off of my thrift shirts and cut them into 5" and 2.5" squares to do Bonnie Hunter's Smokey Mountain Stars. Carol

The bike ride is over 5 days, and we will be on the tandem. Hopefully I will make it. We have done this ride before, but we were both younger and thinner.

Tomorrow our oldest grandson "graduates" 5th grade. It is so hard to believe he will be in Jr High next year. My how time flies.

Yesterday I went to my Lutheran Church quilt guild. I have always had the opportunity to go but with a business, never the time. I have really enjoyed working with these ladies. WHile some of them tie the quilts, another lady and I are cutting and arranging the fabrics into 60 by 80". I"ve been taking my decorative fabrics left from other jobs and my discontinued samples and cutting them into same size squares to be sewn together. Its been a lot of fun. Yesterday the ladies tied about 10 quilts so the tops have to be ready. If you dont' know what to do with excess fabrics, any variety, take them to the local Lutheran Church where they will turn them into quilts for Lutheran World Relief! Carol

Today was beautiful. Did the usual Monday stuff (clean, vacuum, groceries, walk the dog) and finished organizing my fabric wall. Still have to find a home for my wide backing fabrics, feed and flour sacks and flannel, but I am well on my way to organized!

I loved the quotes!!

Thanks for the encouragement! I did get the top & bottom sewn together on Sat. I finish my quilts with the "pillowcase" method. Now I just have to sew up the bottom & then top stitch. I just plan to stitch in the ditch & try to get it finished :)

Today is our last baseball game, so I should have more time to quilt this month!!

Have a blessed week, Ladies!!

I did get some sewing time. I made 9 bindings for quilts I have quilted. I then got two of the binding sewed on.

Spent a bit of time at a Farmer's Market an hour away from home. It's always interesting to see what's out, available, etc. I met several very nice vendors and had a couple of pleasant conversations.

Then I found a booth for donation quilts. There was a humorous potholder that caught my eye, so I came home & tried to find the quote again. (Can you tell I'm older & rambling?!)

Anyway, I found a humor link that I'll share here for your laugh for the day!

We have all been there, Anita. Sometimes it is just one part of a quilt, sometimes it is every step. I agree, you just need to take a break, do something else, then come back to it.

No, Anita, you aren't the only one. What I did was to put mine away for a while and worked on other things. When I came back to it, I realized what was causing the problem and once I corrected it, everything worked fine. Sometimes we just get too close to see the weed in amongst the flowers.

I let my hubby pick out quilt kit from Keepsake Quilting. I also liked the quilt so I agreed to make it . It ended up being all templets. I wasn't sure what I had gotten myself into. It took me over a month just to cut it out and I finally started sewing it. The top turned out OK but I haven't started quilting. I am still not sure if I want to machine or hand quilt it.

Have any of your dear ladies ever had a quilt that fought you so much you wanted to throw it away???

I have been working on my daughter's quilt since the first of the year. I had to re-sew different parts of the tops at least 4 times. Then, the outer edge fought me. I had to re-do the back at least 3 times!! Now, getting the two pieces together is not being any easier. I hate the thought of quilting it - that's not my strong suit anyway!!

I love the colors I choose for it, so I hate to just throw it away. So at this point, I am just pushing thru, faster than I'd like, to just get it done & over with!

Please, someone, tell me I am not the only one to experience this!!

...now if I could just get the young adults to move out into their own space, then I would have a craft / library space. emoticon Some day!

For now, as another mentioned, my sewing machine sits on my dining room table. And bins of fabric are scattered here, there & everywhere. (We have a relatively small ranch-style house w/ 5 people living in it part of the year, and 4 when DS returns to college.) -- It is NOT ideal.

I have one of our spare bedrooms set up for my sewing room. I have our old dinning table for sewing on then have a cutting table made out of an old door it is about counter high so it is a good height for me to cut at. There are two windows so there is a fair amount of natural light. The window across from my sewing machine looks into a tree so I can see birds. My sewing room is on the same floor as the laundry so I can sew and do laundry together.

I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful sewing room with a large sewing table made by my wonderful DH. I sew year round and love it.

I sew year round as well. My sewing machine is always out sitting on my dining room table.

Although it is now packed up for the big move but I suspect once we settle back in I'll have a quilting nook setup.

I love quilting - check out my portfolio. freepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gch

Does anyone else find themselves quilting seasonally? I've started to discover that I'm a cool weather quilter. I plan on forcing myself to finish the quilt that I started working on back in March and am then going to put the sewing machine away for the summer or just work on small projects, since starting in about April all I really want to do is be outside (which is why the quilt I started working on in March is still unfinished).

Went walking on Friday and made it almost 4 mi before ankle acted out.
-- Then Sat. spent several hrs sitting... Time to get back into moving this week!

Made waffles & sausage for brunch on Sunday. -- Chicken in the crock pot for dinner. Can't believe we cleaned it all up! I thought for sure there would be left-overs.

Oldest DD worked today, so youngest DD and her new boyfriend (mostly boyfriend) fixed us dinner. That young man can cook a great meal. We had pork roast, roasted potatoes and yams, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, and tossed salad. He cooked, she cleaned up. Doesn't get much better than that.

Happy Mother's day everyone.

Julie, no new lambs?

I bought king size cases and my memory foam pillow fit nicely. They are plenty long enough to fold over and make an envelope type case.

It was quite hot today, our first 90 degree day of the year. So I took the grands and got some Super Soaker guns and we had a water fight. The air conditioner struggled to cool, so guess it will be serviced this week.

I'm hoping to get Moose on the Loose finished tonight.
Yesterday, I made a pillowcase for DH. He has a memory foam pillow that is a little too thick for standard pillowcases, so I decided to make a custom one for him for his birthday.

Struggling with getting back on track. Too many interruptions to get anywhere with my quilting. Had B and B guests, have an infection under my root canal which won't be fixed til next week. Have more guests coming this weekend and DH's relatives day after that. Got to do a little quilting today but looking forward to Quilt Show on Friday.

I baked a chocolate cake last night. It was sew tasty! Froze half of it. My machine is back up and running and I even installed my sew steady table which I've had for 4 years. Nice big sewing surface now. I sewed a star top together last night but I have so much more to go through and sort and fold. Carol

Poor Charlotte. I'm glad the second lamb was ok. There are some things I don't miss bout living on the farm. My parents got rid of their cows several years ago, he just became too attached to them.

I had my eye exam and glaucoma screening today. They were dilated most of the day, so no working outside for me. Tomorrow we trim trees, spray the pond for weeds, and take flowers to several cemetaries for decoration day on Sunday. It will be busy.

We had a crazy night last night. We got home from work and our ewe Charlotte was in labor and we found a dead lamb laying in the straw. She seemed to be having some difficulty but did deliver a live lamb about 20 min. later. Then one of our older ewes tried to steel the baby from the mom. It took us about 30 min to get her away from the baby so mom could take care of him. It was so noisy we shut a couple of the ewes out of the barn. Things finally settled enough that we were able to go get some dinner. After a quick check on the barn I went to bed. About an hour latter my hubby came in and said that Amber was in labor (she was the ewe that tried to steel the baby). She had twin daughters. So by the end of the night we had three more lambs. All are doing well.

We are running out of pens so we combined to the two sets of older lambs along with the moms in the main pen and they now access to the main pasture. We are still waiting for one more ewe to deliver.

Things were a quieter in the barn tonight.

Can't believe it is May already. I spent the last day of April moving DS home from college for the summer. He will be here for 4 months, and then one more year to go. -- It's a full house for now w/ 2 adult sons working full time + DH + teen daughter.

Hopefully she will get her driver's license sometime in July so I will have more breathing space to do other things...
Like clean out my material stash! (I can relate to previous notes about being embarrassed to have someone see the piles. Until young people move out to their locations, I have no room to work--just the dining room. (I lay out quilts on my bed.)

Anita, you should try riding. We are usually on a tandem so I can keep up with him.

Got a good report from the vet. We know what she has, don't know why she has it. It was a "folicular hematoma" which he said is usually caused by an injection that knicks a vein. But she hasn't had an injection since her rabies in July 2014. So they are doing some more slides labs. Good news, it requires no further treatment. We are happy.

Wow, Bev, you would get along well with my DH. He is an avid cyclist and owns several, as in more than 5, bikes! He even rides in winter!
Julie, all those lambs and you still have time to sew!
Carol, I am sure you will be happy once you get your shelves moved! It is always a good feeling to get your sewing room organized!
I accidently booked the Bed and Breakfast when I was at retreat so my DD came and helped DH with breakfast. Just finished laundry. I like to hang linen out. It smells so nice.
Had a very challenging quilt project for the retreat. I usually finish several tops but this time only got the blocks together. The quilt has a new name, now it is called Nightmare!! It is supposed to be a beginner quilt. Luckily I am not, but it sure tried my patience!! I was with friends and we had a lot of fun!

I'm so proud of your exercise Bev. I'm such a slug. So, my decorating business is slowing down and I"m not anxiously seeking much new business, just accepting what comes in. There are benefits to owning this business, like ordering rolls of batting at wholesale cost and having an account with major quilting and fabric suppliers. So I guess I will have to figure a way to keep it going, at least modestly. I've been taking large fabric books to my church guild and cutting up the samples into squares. I have more to take but as I clean out my garage, I am moving 2 shelves into my sewing room. I will have to majorly move things around to get them in there but it will help! I am embarrassed to have my handyman over to do it but it needs to be done so I can move stuff in there and not have it all over the house. And tomorrow, a friend and organizer is coming to help me with paperwork and catalogs in my office. Embarrassed to have her over to but hey, that is what they do for a living. And me, too. I go into homes that are sad and make them beautiful! Looking forward to the effort. Carol

We rode the south end of the Tanglefoot trail today. What a great day for a ride! I love riding in the 60's. Tomorrow I take the fur baby to the vet and get the results of her biopsy. Wish her well.

What a beautiful day we had today! Spent most of it outside with the grands, then did some shelf rearranging and fabric sorting in the sewing room. It was a nice day.

Sounds like fun raising sheep! Waiting for them to be born. And a lot of work too. I think I could have been a farm wife. So yesterday I dug out a UFO from Oct 2013. A friend and I had bought the same quilt kit from an LQS. I used the fabric for something different and last year she was making the quilt from the kit at a retreat we went to. She was throwing the bonus triangles away cut from the ends. They were large and a lot of them, I mean a lot. I fished some out of the trash and then she started saving them for me. Yesterday, since I was working on my matching UFO, I sewed them all together and trimmed to 3.5" while watching The Lincoln Lawyer. I think I will sew them onto my quilt as an additional border. What a waste if thrown away. I am in a sewing, get'er done mood again. Carol

Julie, it is getting crowded at your place. I'd love to see pictures, too.

Fur baby is almost back to her old self (except for the big patch of fur missing on her neck and shoulder. That will grow back, so no worries.

We had thunderstorms early this morning (4 am), then a lovely mid day, and more storms around 5 pm. Our downtown is in need of work on it's storm drains, and was flooded by 6 pm. Haven't heard any updates, but imagine ServePro will be doing some business next week.

Glad to hear your fur baby is doing well. I have a dog and three cats and they are big part of my life.

We had a surprise this morning. When we went out to check on the sheep and lambs, our ewe Clover had twins over night. We got her and the babies moved into a small pen. They are doing well. We now have 9 lambs from three ewes, with three more ewes yet to go.

I finished the pink and green quilt top today while I did laundry. It was cool outside so got in door work done in case tomorrow is nice and we can get a few things done outside.
